Thanks for leaving a comment on my Wish List post @ http://counterculturalschool.blogspot.com/2009/01/library-builders-my-wish-list.html

I picked up a copy of Fabre's Insects book at a book sale for 25 cents recently...I felt like the seller had no idea the treasure they were parting with for a song!

I see you use Charlotte Mason...I also got The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady at Goodwill for 50 cents!!

I had never heard of the Dillingham Pierson books...they look wonderful! I'd love to get them! In the meantime, I did find them available as a free download at Baldwin Project.

And yes, I know Jennifer...for almost 20 years now! She is the one who recommended A Mother's Rule of Life, which is on my wish list!

And now I know who YOU are!! I never would have guessed, thanks for saying something!

Come by my post tomorrow, I'm talking about the Handbook of Nature Study! And, just wanted to tell you that The Thomas Jefferson Companion is much better then the TJE. In terms of understanding the philosophy, I mean. I would switch the order of reading the books. So, start with TJC!
